Preschool

Our preschool program is the core of the Co-op and consists of preschool classes for children ages 1-6 during the school year. Information about registration fees, tuition, and scholarship can be found on the tuition and fees page.

Toddlers

1 year olds, or "Toddlers," come to class once per week for an hour and fifteen minutes with their parent or caregiver. In the Toddlers class children are introduced to the preschool environment. Each class opens with "free choice" time where kids can choose from a variety of developmentally appropriate activities, toys, climbing equipment, games, puzzles, and art projects. Following free choice the kids transition to the music room for singing, dancing, and playing musical instruments. To enroll in a Toddler class, children must be 1 by August 31 of a given school year.

Two's

2 year olds, or "2's," come to class twice per week for 2 hours. A parent or caregiver attends every other class with their child (1 day per week for twice weekly classes or every other week for once weekly classes). This gradual transition to independence in the classroom makes separation very straightforward for parents and children. The 2's class includes free choice and circle time, as well as music, a healthy snack, and playtime on our secure, outdoor playground. To enroll in a 2's class, children must be 2 by August 31 of a given school year.

In the 3's class, children have free choice, circle time, snack, music, and playground time, as well as cooking projects, and field trips around the city. To enroll in a 3's class, children must be 3 by August 31 of a given school year.

In the Pre-K class, children have free choice, circle time, snack, music, and playground time, as well as cooking projects, field trips around the city, and personal safety instruction.
